If you think the Nike LeBron signature line has ‘peaked’ in popularity and demand, think again. Winning a Championship is a true ticket to the ‘next level’ of status, and while the LeBron releases of the last few years have been outstanding at the very least, get ready for Nike and its team of special-edition experts to up the ante. Kicking things off for the ‘new era’ of LeBron sneakers is the Nike LeBron 9 Championship Pack – a massive two-set release featuring the Nike LeBron 9 ‘MVP‘ and the Red/Black colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Championship’ (a PE that LeBron wore for Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals). This two-Pack set of LeBrons is set to release in very limited quantities Saturday, August 11th in a unique double-wide box with ‘Earned, not Given’ printed below the LJ logo. These will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers in North America and in China (not just in Miami as previously reported), so enjoy this gallery of images below and let us know which of the two versions are better, and fill us in with your opinions on just how much more popular LeBrons will be now that he’s a confirmed Champion.
